What is the injustice we are solving?

I want to stand against Racism which takes place in our every day lives everywhere around us, and around the world.

Hi Natalie,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Best,
Adrian

Hi Natalie -- thanks for posting this important project. You're right that there is so much racism in our daily lives, and I'm glad that you're ready to stand up to it.

Sounds like you know what you want to tackle but are still in the stage of making a plan for how to do it. Is that right? If so, we encourage you to use our tools (peacefirst.org/resources), particularly the "Understand" section to conduct some interviews in your community to determine some solutions that will get at the root of the problem.

You can also ask us any questions you have -- and, once you have a plan, you can apply for a $250 mini-grant. Sound good?
